Hawkes Radiator and 1-800 Radiator Join Forces to Better Serve Phoenix

Collusion of Locally Based Hawkes Radiator and National Distributor 1-800 Radiator in Phoenix

PHOENIX, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 4, 2006 -- Phoenix-based Hawkes Radiator has partnered with national auto part distributor 1-800 Radiator. The combination of Hawkes Radiator's community-oriented service and 1-800 Radiator's buying power and inventory means low prices and high quality service for the do-it-yourselfers and auto shops that work to replace radiators and cooling components.

The standard automotive radiator lasts only seven years, meaning that a large percentage of the cars on the road are excellent candidates for a radiator replacement. 1-800 Radiator has been highly successful catering to this segment of the automotive industry. Today 1-800 Radiator has over 80 locations and is the nation's largest independent cooling component distributor. Hawkes Radiator focused on providing radiators and components specifically to Phoenix and the surrounding area. In the thirty-four years that they have been in business Hawkes Radiator developed a strong local presence, and reputation for service.

Through their partnership with 1-800 Radiator, Hawkes Radiator has added sturdy national backing to their already thriving local business. Says Terry Stewart, the owner of Hawkes Radiator, "Due to the linking of 1-800 Radiator and Hawkes, we can offer the service of a local family-owned business with the support of a nationwide company." The individuals and repair shops that make up Stewart's clientele benefit the most from the change. Now these customers have access to 1-800 Radiator's inventory, nationwide shipping, lifetime warranty, and buying power through a well-established local business committed to providing a good buying experience.

The three Hawkes Radiator locations in the Phoenix area are currently open for business and fully stocked.
